This Week in Random Gun Violence, Part 3,247

Virginia officials have arrested two teenagers who authorities believe were taking potshots at drivers along Interstate 64.

Police arrested a 19-year-old and a 16-year-old on Friday in connection with the shootings, which left two drivers injured.

The suspects have been charged with two felony counts of malicious wounding, one count of attempted wounding, two counts of the use of a firearm in a felony, and five counts of maliciously shooting at an occupied vehicle.

According to the AP, the highways shootings "stirred memories of the Washington-area sniper shootings six years ago that killed 10 people."

I hate to see drivers and passengers deprived of the capability of returning effective fire. Some ambitious senator or representative should introduce a bill creating permits for fender-mounted cannon. This would be in addition to the normal complement of pistols and revolvers.
